Candied Sweet Potatoes from Larry & Lee Leruth
Updated: Jan 3
Here is a wonderful side dish from the Leruth brothers. After they took over the restaurant from their father, they created some wonderful dishes. Their Roasted Duck with Oyster stuffing is the best duck dish I have ever eaten. These Sweet Potatoes are great with any dish.

1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
